….whilst most of the remaining images seem to fall into the ‘small kids in charge of boats’ category which never ceases to amaze either our passengers or ourselves, even though we’ve seen it 100 times before!

If you’re born and brought up on a floating raft house, which many of the River’s villages consist of, then obviously kids need to learn to swim at the same time they learn to walk and need to  be able to control a boat at the earliest age possible!

Next up, part 3 of our series, with some images of the spectacular scenery of Cambodia’s Sangkar River.
